Tax Dollars Hard at Work
« on: December 18, 2016, 07:16:42 PM »
The Soldiers of D Co 1-50 Infantry conducted their "Familiarization Firing" of the M2A1 Browning .50 caliber Heavy Machine Gun....

And John Browning never made a bad gun, right?

Cheers!

I love my Browning designed Winchester High Wall 32-40, circa 1898. Still working perfectly.

Great to see our infantry are getting the opportunity to familiarize on the beast..

Did not have the chance in basic when I was in to familiarize with the .50 since I was going to a light infantry unit. Did not see or fire the .50 until I went to Berlin..
